Coaster Calendar plus Post it Notes


Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for July 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects using our favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper as well as coordinating embellishments. What we love about Stampin’ Up! is they make it so easy to mix and match colors. And, the amazing selection of embellishments provides a wonderful finished look to our projects. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

I love making these Coaster Calendars plus Post it Notes!  The Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP is stunning!  The shiny part is beautiful Copper.  I also love the coordinating 3/8 Ruched Ribbon in Flirty Flamingo.  The calendar is 3″ x 2 1/4″.  I bought them a few months ago here.  Unfortunately, they are out of stock.  For the calendars I made last year, I bought the calendars here.

Here’s the side view showing how you can set it up on your desk.  I also bought the chipboard several years ago.  I make these calendars every year.  Last year Stampin’ Up! sold chipboard so you could cut your own 4″x4″ and corner round the edges.  You can google chipboard or I did find coasters today here.  Hopefully they are they same.  I’ve never purchased chipboard coasters from this company.

Here’s the Post it Note side.

I love bright and happy colors!  I have every color of bright and happy Fiesta dishes.  Well, the Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP reminds me of my Fiesta because it’s also so bright and happy.  I typically give away most of the projects I make, but this Coaster Calendar plus Post it Notes is going to be sitting on my stamping desk through all of 2017!

I only have one video on my You Tube channel and it’s the directions to this Coaster Calendar plus Post it Notes.  Please have grace if you choose to watch my video.

If you’d like to see more videos with directions for my projects in the future or have any questions, please leave me a comment at the top of this blog post.

I made this video a year ago and Stampin’ Up! no longer sells the Coaster Board. Leave me a comment and I can tell you where you can purchase the coasters.

    Hi Ruth,
    Did I sound young to you? When people call our house, they often ask to speak to my Mom. 🙂 These coaster calendars are so easy. I know you’ll love making it.

  11. Beth (Post author)


    I tried to send you an email but it didn’t go through.

  12. Ruth S.

    Hi Beth, your video was great and has inspired me to try it. Well done and I look forward to the next video of your projects. Lovely to hear you voice, too.

  14. Pam Cherrix

    Great idea! Beth where can I purchase the coaster board and calendars? Thanks.

  15. Katy McGloin

    I obviously aren’t the only one who thinks this is an adorable project. I am so glad I have a small reserve of the coaster board. Will be checking back later to see where the 2017 calendars can be found!!
    Thanks for sharing…

  16. Lynndorian Swindell

    Where did you find the calendar

  17. Rae Harper-Burnet

    Great idea Beth! I’ve seen calendars and I’ve seen Post-it note holders but never the two together like this. TFS!

  18. Marilyn Wilson
